A Website Reveals if Your Password Can be Easily Hacked

A website called ‘Have I been Pwned’ allows users to check if their password has been compromised.

The website has been created by security developer Troy Hunt, and it has a database of 306 million hashed passwords.

The point of the web-based service is so that people who have been guilty of using sloppy passwords have a means of independent verification that it’s not one they should be using any more,” Hunt wrote in his blog.
